Food meets fashion as the contestants must prepare dishes for high-end designers.
John Sedlar (executive chef from Rivera Restaurant) and Thomas Ortega (owner/executive chef of Ortega 120 Restaurant) are invited to see whether the teams' Mexican dishes are up to par.
The teams struggle to create four unique lamb dishes.
The teams are challenged to create an all-American menu for newly-naturalized US citizens.
The battle continues as Gordon sets up a challenge for the all-men and all-women teams.
The chefs are asked to make their signature dishes, and Gordon separates the contestants into teams, vying for the prize: a dinner prepared by past winners Dave Levey and Rock Harper.
